CPR & First Aid Training Options During the COVID-19 Pandemic

[En Español]

Due to the COVID-19 crisis, we offer 2 training format options for those who work in essential sectors and need a current CPR-AED and/or First Aid certificate to continue working.

OPTION 1: All in-person classroom course

We are limiting our enrollment to ensure that all students are 6 feet apart.

Our full COVID-19 policies are listed below.

You can see our classroom course schedule and register here: Classroom course schedule

OPTION 2: One-on-one training

This is our Blended Learning format and is a 2-part course.

PART 1 involves completing an online course at home (1-1.5 hours).

PART 2 is a one-on-one skills session with an instructor for skills practice and testing (1 hour).
